    I followed this case closely when it began in 2008. Jacques was arrested quickly. Since then, the entire Casey Anthony saga has played out and is in the aftermath stage.

    I'm not blaming Vermont for this. They aren't trying Jacques. It was turned into a Federal Case, which added the death penalry to the punishment menu. The first big delay in the road to justice came with this action. It took quite a while for the case to go to the Feds. Federal cases tend to go more slowly.

    Nevertheless, I'm more than ready for this trial. Too bad it will be in Federal Court just because it will not be televised. Jacques has bought himself a lot of time, but it will catch up with him when the trial occurs.

    Here is an article about the hearing yesterday.

    LOL, I'm not ashamed to say that I wish he could be hooked up to the equipment he ordered and the equipment turned on in Warp speed mode until he croaks............seriously......... In this case I think the punishment should match the crime. He definitely deserves exactly what he dealt out.

    What's Holding Up the Michael Jacques Trial? The Busy Couple Defending Him

    By Andy Bromage [07.03.12]


    Brooke Bennett’s grandmother, Lucinda Milne, went to federal court in Burlington last Friday hoping the judge would set a February trial date for her granddaughter’s alleged killer.

    snipped...
    Milne attended the scheduling conference, at which Assistant U.S. Attorney Craig Nolan confirmed that federal prosecutors could be ready for trial in six months. From the bench, U.S. District Judge William K. Sessions III agreed that “this case has been going on a long time, and we should be pushing this along.”

    But just minutes later, Sessions laid out a more leisurely timetable and set a trial date of September 3, 2013. Later, outside the courthouse, a teary-eyed and shaky Milne said, “That sounds like September 2050 to me right now.”

    Disgusting. These people must be so proud.

    Ruhnke has also been called on to defend terrorists facing the needle. He was co-counsel for two al-Qaeda operatives who participated in the 1998 bombings of American embassies in East Africa, which killed 224 people and injured thousands. The jury spared their lives.

    Two months ago, the defense for a high-profile terror suspect — a co-defendant of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed — formally requested that Ruhnke join the team.

    The upcoming murder trial in Puerto Rico centers on Alexis Candelario-Santana, who faces a death sentence for committing or ordering the murders of 21 people between 1993 and 2009.

    So committing a murder in a state where they don't have the DP has given this guy an extra 5 years of breathing. Where was the mercy for Brooke? Who stood up for her and defended her rights? Where was this dream team couple when poor little 12yo Brooke was having the life ripped out of her by her UNCLE, for God's sake?

    This case made me distraught back when it happened, but now that my own little girl is 12 it makes me absolutely desperate for justice. I can't believe this has been stalled for four years and isn't even getting started until next fall.

    I know everyone deserves their day in court, and I wouldn't even hold it against Jacques if he would just get there. Brooke's family must feel like the knife is twisting in them every time this gets delayed and delayed again.

    I'm so sorry, Brooke. Justice is coming, honey, even if she is taking her sweet time.

    Brooke's case is what brought me here to WS. I saw her face on the news and she looked just like my daughter who was the same age. I started Googling and discovered this forum full of amazing people who were just as worried about what had happened to Brooke and just as horrified when the truth started to come out.

    The thing that gets me is that, since then, I have followed dozens of cases that had an arrest, trial and even a conviction in a shorter amount of time and with far less evidence. As this case was unfolding we learned the extent that Brooke's "uncle" went to to stage her disappearance, and then abuse and murder her in the absolute worst way possible.

    We know about the cameras in the convenience store, the Breckenridge story, witness statements, child porn on his computer and in his house and then we learned of receipts for devices and toys and that he ordered for the purpose of destroying this girl.

    Yet still he sits, 4 years later, no trial in sight. No accountability and no justice for Brooke.

    I have the deepest respect for our criminal justice system but no one will convince me that his attorney's are doing anything but manipulating and abusing that system. My only comfort is knowing that he is rotting away in a cell somewhere experiencing at least a little of what he did to Brooke. I think about her every day and just pray that he gets the maximum sentence he can possibly get and, in my perfect world, he won't be the only one is this case that will see a trial and conviction some day. There are numerous people who are responsible for this.

    It is absolutely shameful that this case has not gone to trial. It is sickening to me. What happened to Brooke was shocking and horrifying, and she deserves justice.

    WTH is wrong with Sessions? Move it along faster, man! Don't coddle the defense lawyers! Appoint someone who is not so busy, and get this train back on the track. I don't give a flip that they have a trial in Puerto Rico. Get that trial delayed!

    GB you, Mrs. Milne, as well as Brooke's Dad & stepmom, and anyone who truly loved Brooke. It has been so long that I do not remember how many siblings Brooke has, but I believe she had at least one younger brother. I guess he thinks his wonderful sister can just be murdered in a most horrible way and the murderer (and lawyers) can just be coddled. JM needs to be convicted and go to a hard ass prison instead of being an unsentenced inmate living in better conditions all this time. The unsentenced have it too good while awaiting trial.

    I am furious about a 2013 trial. It is not going to get any easier to try this case. Witnesses will not have as sharp a memory the longer it is postponed.

    This is just so wrong!!!! I absolutely hate Michael Jacques!!!! Let's be sure and give this sadistic POS more rights than Brooke ever had.

    Oh, a tactic with some defense lawyers is to ask for extension after extension after extension. Then , change lawyers, or request to change lawyers and get even another long extension so that the new lawyer can 'get up to speed' on the case.

    Manipulation of the system is exactly what is going on here, and this judge is going right along with it, IMO. The prosecutors can be ready in 6 months, so this is clearly giving in to the defense. Why couldn't the Puerto Rican trial been the one to be delayed??? Is that defendant more important than justice for Brooke after all this time????

    I guess I'd better try to calm down now!

    MOO

    Some good news here!

    Appeals court: Prosecutors may use obstruction evidence against Jacques in Brooke Bennett case
    A surprisingly quick decision by a federal appeals court might have strengthened the prosecution’s argument for having Michael Jacques of Randolph sentenced to death if he’s convicted of the 2008 kidnapping and killing of his 12-year-old niece, Brooke Bennett.

    A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in a 17-page decision issued Monday, unanimously ruled that prosecutors may use evidence that authorities say proves Jacques, while in jail, tried to shift blame for the kidnapping and slaying of Bennett from himself to a make-believe international sex ring Jacques called “Breckenridge.”
    Much more at link. Maybe they can move the trial up now?
